Herst has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/fxtf-drafts:

== [filter-effects] new bounding boxes as filterUnits ==
[Decorated object boxes](https://svgwg.org/svg2-draft/single-page.html#coords-BoundingBoxes) seem like a great addition to SVG2 but IMHO they would be even more useful if also [selectable as `filterUnits` for `<filter>`s](https://drafts.fxtf.org/filter-effects/#FilterElement).

I am currently working on a project where the [default bounding box definition is causing me headaches](https://stackoverflow.com/q/46201654/2261442) because sometimes I end up with elements with very large side lengths and in other cases I can end up with a BB length/width of 0. Decorated object boxes in conjunction with making filter units relative to them would be a solution for such cases.

`auto` property values for the filter lengths as discussed in #2 would also sound promising. A reliably work `calc()` would also help (currently it doesn't as also mentioned in [my Stack Overflow thread](https://stackoverflow.com/q/46201654/2261442)). This here is just another suggestion at how a possibly not-too-uncommon problem could be tackled.
